Abstract

Techniques for client side translation cache prediction are provided. The techniques include obtaining meta data associated with a request, applying a cache prediction model to the meta data to automatically predict one or more translations associated with the request, and storing the one or more translations in a client translation cache.

Description

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

Embodiments of the invention generally relate to information technology, and, more particularly, to cache management.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Currently, translation systems written for client side applications (for example, web clients) send all content to a server for translation. The servers perform the translation and send the translated words/phrases/sentences back to the client for display. Existing approaches for improving the translation speed include keeping an index table in the server containing the most frequent sentences that are requested for translation by web client users. However, a need exists to improve speed and accuracy of machine translation (MT) services provided over the web and/or a network.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Principles and embodiments of the invention provide techniques for translation cache prediction. An exemplary method (which may be computer-implemented) for client side translation cache prediction, according to one aspect of the invention, can include steps of obtaining meta data associated with a request, applying a cache prediction model to the meta data to automatically predict one or more translations associated with the request, and storing the one or more translations in a client translation cache.

One or more embodiments of the invention or elements thereof can be implemented in the form of a computer product including a tangible computer readable storage medium with computer useable program code for performing the method steps indicated. Furthermore, one or more embodiments of the invention or elements thereof can be implemented in the form of an apparatus including a memory and at least one processor that is coupled to the memory and operative to perform exemplary method steps. Yet further, in another aspect, one or more embodiments of the invention or elements thereof can be implemented in the form of means for carrying out one or more of the method steps described herein; the means can include (i) hardware module(s), (ii) software module(s), or (iii) a combination of hardware and software modules; any of (i)-(iii) implement the specific techniques set forth herein, and the software modules are stored in a tangible computer-readable storage medium (or multiple such media).

These and other objects, features and advantages of the present invention will become apparent from the following detailed description of illustrative embodiments thereof, which is to be read in connection with the accompanying drawings.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF EMBODIMENTS

Principles of the invention include client side translation cache prediction to improve speed and accuracy of machine translation (MT) services. One or more embodiments of the invention include automated prediction and dynamic modification of user/server cache based on user behavior. Accordingly, the techniques can include automatically predicting possible translations that will be requested and caching them in the web client user instead of the server. Having a translation cache on the client can provide higher translation speed, better robustness to data network coverage, and increased use of services. Further, this allows a user to dynamically modify the translation cache and improve prediction accuracy.

In one or more embodiments of the invention, the meta data associated with an initial request is examined in order to predict the client side translation cache. The meta data can include content for translation, location, network path, user information, last request, language, etc. Also, the meta data information is used to automatically predict the topic of translation in which the user is interested. This facilitates a determination of the most frequently requested translations by all users in the given topic.

Accordingly, the most common translations (source and target) can be transmitted to the client side and stored in the client machine. If the next request matches the source side of the cache, the translation service will redirect the output from the cache instead of making a request to the server. Such techniques, for example, significantly reduce the load on backend translation systems as well as produce higher quality translations at higher speeds.

As detailed herein, translation segments can include words, phrases or other colloquial terms. Additionally, in one or more embodiments of the invention, the client side translation cache is dynamically updated, and the updates can occur at different granularities (phrases, names, etc.). User-specific metadata can be used for building a translation cache and for performing personalization through various methods. Such methods can include, for example topic modeling, user modeling (user information), segment modeling, and content modeling (type of content user is translating (words, names, sentences, etc.)).

FIG. 1 is a diagram illustrating a client-server design of a machine translation pipeline, according to an embodiment of the present invention. By way of illustration, FIG. 1 depicts a machine translation server 102, a server-client interface 104, a client component 106, a client cache 108, a meta data collection component 110 and a cache prediction component 112. As shown in FIG. 1, one or more embodiments of the invention include using server-client interface module 104 for all translations. This module will check if a translation request is already in the cache 108. If the query is found, the translation request is not forwarded to the translation server. Instead, the translation is obtained efficiently from the translation cache index. Additionally, meta data collection component 110 collects information from client component 106 and server-client interface 104, which are used by cache prediction component 112 to decide the entries to be added to the client cache 108.

FIG. 2 is a diagram illustrating meta-data collection and analysis, according to an embodiment of the present invention. By way of illustration, FIG. 2 depicts a user component 200, a user behavior information component 201, a user topic information component 202, a user profile information component 203, a user cache prediction model component 204 and a client translation cache component 205. FIG. 2 depicts how one or more embodiments of the invention collect meta-data that will adapt the cache. As illustrated, there are interactions between user component 200 and the information components 201, 202 and 203 to generate the relevant information, which is then provided to the user cache prediction model component 204. Such a model is then used to generate translations that are stored in the client translation cache component 205. Accordingly, one or more embodiments of the invention include dynamic adaptation of cache based on meta-information of the user and his/her requests.

FIG. 3 and FIG. 4 illustrate an overall flow diagram for the use of cache. FIG. 3 is a diagram illustrating a cache prediction flow, according to an embodiment of the present invention. In step 300, a user requests a page load. Step 310 includes determining if a cache model and/or prediction has loaded. If no, step 301 includes loading a user model. Otherwise, step 302 includes loading the page and step 303 includes updating the user cache prediction model.

FIG. 4 is a diagram illustrating a cache usage flow, according to an embodiment of the present invention. Step 400 includes a user requesting a page translation. Step 410 includes determining if the content is in the cache. If no, step 401 includes activating the translation server. If yes, however, then step 402 includes retrieving the content from the cache.

FIG. 5 is a diagram illustrating example architecture, according to an embodiment of the present invention. By way of illustration, FIG. 5 depicts a translation server 502, a client component 504, a dynamic update component (for updating with predictions) 506 and a database 508. As depicted, the client component 504 receives data from the translation server 502 and the client cache which is updated by the dynamic cache prediction component 506. The dynamic cache prediction component 506 takes information from the client component 504 and the state of database 508 to further update the cache database 508.

FIG. 6 is a block diagram illustrating example architecture, according to an embodiment of the present invention. By way of illustration, FIG. 6 depicts a translation server 602, a client translation cache 604, a user component 606 and a user cache prediction component 608. Additionally, FIG. 6 depicts a dynamic user behavior information component 610, a user topic modeling component 612, a user topic features component 614 and a basic user profile features component 616.

As depicted, dynamic user behavior information component 610, user topic features component 614, and basic user profile features component 616 receive user data in various forms (such as dynamic behavior information, topic information and user profile information). This information is processed by those components (that is, components 610, 614 and 616) and is passed on to user topic modeling component 612 for overall topic modeling. The predicted topic model is used by user cache prediction component 608 to update the cache.

As illustrated in FIG. 6, one or more embodiments of the invention include dynamic client side translation prediction with personalization. Accordingly, applications can provide a translation and, on start-up, load a cache of probable translation segments. As detailed herein, a client side translation cache can be dynamically updated, and updates can be at different granularities (phrases, names, etc.). Further, as depicted in FIG. 6, user-specific metadata can be used for building translation cache. Personalization can be carried out through, for example, topic modeling, user information (user modeling), segment modeling and content modeling based on the type of content being translated (words, names, sentences, etc.).

FIG. 7 is a flow diagram illustrating techniques for client side translation cache prediction, according to an embodiment of the present invention. Step 702 includes obtaining meta data associated with a request. This step can be carried out, for example, using a user behavior information component, a user topic features component, and/or a basic user profile features component. The meta data can content for translation, location, a network path, user information, a previous request, language, etc.

Step 704 includes applying a cache prediction model to the meta data to automatically predict one or more translations associated with the request. This step can be carried out, for example, using a cache prediction module. Translations can include one or more translation segments that include words, phrases and colloquial terms. Applying a cache prediction model to the meta data includes using the meta data to automatically predict a topic of translation in which a user is interested, which can additionally include facilitating a determination of frequently requested translations by all users in the given topic.

Step 706 includes storing the one or more translations in a client translation cache. This step can be carried out, for example, using a client translation cache module.

The techniques depicted in FIG. 7 additionally include using user information to generate the cache prediction model. User information can include user behavior information, user topic information, user profile, etc. Also, one or more embodiments of the invention can include performing personalization of the client translation cache. Performing personalization of the client translation cache includes at least one of topic modeling, user modeling, segment modeling and content modeling.

Further, the techniques depicted in FIG. 7 can include enabling a user to dynamically modify the client translation cache to improve prediction accuracy. Modifications or updates to the client translation cache occur at one or more granularities. Also, one or more embodiments of the invention include identifying common translations transmitted to the client side for storage in a client machine. One or more embodiments of the invention can additionally include redirecting an output from the client translation cache to a client machine if a request matches a source side of the cache, as well as loading a cache of one or more probable translation segments upon start-up of a client interface.

The techniques depicted in FIG. 7 can also, as described herein, include providing a system, wherein the system includes distinct software modules, each of the distinct software modules being embodied on a tangible computer-readable recordable storage medium. All the modules (or any subset thereof) can be on the same medium, or each can be on a different medium, for example. The modules can include any or all of the components shown in the figures. In one or more embodiments, the modules include a cache prediction module, a translation server module and a client translation cache module that can run, for example on one or more hardware processors.
